Sept. 27 – Randall Bramblett with Whisper Kiss opening. This is a special Sunflower Concert to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Friends of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia and will feature the full Randall Bramblett Band for the first time in the series. Bramblett, a Jesup, Ga. native, may be known as Southern Rock Royalty for playing on stage with rock heroes like Bonnie Raitt, The Allman Brothers Band, Steve Winwood and Widespread Panic. Respected for his songwriting, he penned the title track for the Grammy-nominated Blind Boys of Alabama’s new album, adding to a long catalog of songs covered by Raitt, Gregg Allman, Bonnie Bramlett, Hot Tuna, Delbert McClinton and more. But it’s Bramblett’s own career as frontman, creating 12 albums, where his artistry is on full display. “One of the South’s most lyrical and literate songwriters.” Rolling Stone
